An edit button should be added to the forum.

What do you want to edit?  


Posts are currently editable for a few minutes after you post (so that you can correct errors).  After a short period of time (I can't remember how long), the feature times out. We did this on purpose a long time ago, before I was a moderator, and I cannot remember all the reasons we went with this approach.

Sometimes I want to add something or make grammatical corrections. I couldn't find the edit button.

EDIT: Thanks found it. I am unsure why I couldn't find it.

This was done so that days later someone could not edit or remove a post therefore changing the context or progression of the thread. I feel like an old timer.

I have to refresh the page after submitting it to see the edit button. That is why I wasn't seeing it.
